The "End of Quarter/Year Superlatives Awards Ceremony" is a unique program that uses WorkTango's Nominations & Awards feature to host a celebration of your employees' accomplishments. Here's how it works:

  • Nominations Period: Admins open nominations forms a month prior to the awards ceremony, typically during an All-Hands meeting. During this meeting, the rules, award categories, prizes, and any other relevant details are shared with the employees.
  • Diverse Award Categories: Admins have the freedom to launch a variety of award categories, ranging from "Best Dressed Award" to "Energizer Bunny Award" and more. The number and types of awards are entirely up to the admins' discretion and can be tied to company values, to reinforce actions that define your culture.
  • Employee Nominations: Employees nominate one another, providing compelling reasons for why their colleagues deserve to win specific awards.
  • Winner Selection: After the nomination period ends, admins decide on the winners. This can be based on a majority vote or admins' judgment to select the most deserving nominations.
  • Awards Ceremony: The highlight of the program is the awards ceremony, which takes place during the All-Hands meeting the following month. This is a perfect opportunity for creativity and celebrating your employees' achievements.
  • Recognition: The winners receive recognition to commemorate their award win, making it a lasting memory of their accomplishments.
